    Scientists study the radio pulsar PSR J1420-6048 and its nebula

    (ORDO NEWS) — Using various space telescopes, astronomers have made X-ray observations of a radio pulsar known as PSR J1420-6048. Pulsars are highly magnetized spinning neutron stars that emit a beam of electromagnetic radiation. They are usually detected as short bursts of radio emission, but some of them are also observed with optical, X-ray and gamma-ray telescopes. The Pulsar Wind Nebula (PWN) is a nebula powered by the wind of…

    Pulsar PSR J1835−3259B is responsible for the gamma radiation of the entire parent cluster of stars

    (ORDO NEWS) — Using NASA‘s Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope, Chinese astronomers studied a newly discovered millisecond pulsar called PSR J1835-3259B. As a result, they identified gamma radiation from this source. Pulsars are highly magnetized, rotating neutron stars that emit streams of electromagnetic radiation. The most rapidly rotating pulsars, with rotation periods of less than 30 milliseconds, are known as millisecond pulsars. Astronomers believe that such objects formed as part…

    For the first time in history, astronomers have directly measured the speed of a pulsar’s own motion

    (ORDO NEWS) — Astronomers for the first time managed to measure the speed of its own movement of the pulsar. We are talking about the object J1124-5916, which is located in a young supernova remnant. Scientists have recorded that the speed of the proper movement of the pulsar J1124-5916 was 612 km / s. This explains well the model of hydrodynamic impact, since the neutron star is accelerated due to…

    Astronomers have identified the most powerful pulsar in a distant galaxy

    (ORDO NEWS) — Neutron stars are the dense remnants of large stars. These are the collapsed cores of stars formed during a supernova explosion. Although we generally know how they form, we are still learning how they develop, especially at a young age. But that is starting to change thanks to major surveys of the sky that have allowed astronomers to observe a neutron star that could be a little…

    Astronomers have found evidence of the existence of the most powerful pulsar in a distant galaxy

    (ORDO NEWS) — Astronomers analyzing data from the VLA Sky Survey have discovered one of the youngest known neutron stars, the superdense remnant of a massive star that exploded in a supernova. Images from the National Science Foundation’s Carl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) show that the bright radio emission from the spinning pulsar’s magnetic field has only recently emerged from a dense shell of supernova debris. The object,…

    Astronomers have discovered a new millisecond pulsar

    (ORDO NEWS) — An international team of astronomers has announced the discovery of a new millisecond pulsar in the globular cluster NGC 6652. The newly discovered pulsar has been designated PSR J1835-3259B. The study, which details the find and reveals the fundamental parameters of this object, was published May 30 on the arXiv preprint server. Pulsars are highly magnetized, spinning neutron stars that emit a beam of electromagnetic radiation. The…

    Astronomers have discovered the brightest pulsar outside our Galaxy

    (ORDO NEWS) — Scientists have discovered the brightest pulsar ever observed outside the Milky Way, revealing the true nature of a distant, luminous object previously thought to be a distant galaxy. Pulsars are incredibly dense neutron stars that emit beams of electromagnetic radiation from their poles. Due to the fact that these objects rotate rapidly, their high-energy radiation looks like short periodic pulses when viewed from other points in space,…

    Physics of the almost impossible what will tell the brightest pulsar

    (ORDO NEWS) — Take a colossus with a mass of one and a half to two Suns. Compress it to a diameter of several kilometers, so that a cubic centimeter of matter weighs hundreds of millions of tons. Add the most powerful magnetic field in the universe. Wrap yourself in an atmosphere of particles moving at nearly the speed of light. Recently, astronomers discovered the brightest pulsar of all located…

    Unusual emission from the pulsar PSR B1859 + 07 studied using the FAST telescope

    (ORDO NEWS) — Using the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST), Chinese astronomers have studied unusual radiation from a pulsar called PSR B1859+07. The results of this study will help to better understand the anomalous radiation regimes observed in the case of some pulsars. Pulsars are highly magnetized spinning neutron stars that emit a stream of electromagnetic radiation. They are usually detected in the form of short pulses of radio…
